PS3 To Gain Support For 3-D Movies On Blu-Ray and YouTube

An anonymous reader writes with news that Sony is planning a firmware update for the PS3 to enable 3-D playback from Blu-ray movies and YouTube. The update is scheduled for September, and support for 3-D photos will come later. Sony’s Kaz Hirai spoke recently about how the PS3 was designed with these kinds of upgrades in mind. “Given how fast technology turns over now, we knew going in that we had to pack a lot of horsepower into the PS3. Four years ago — when you look at the console’s power and its retail price — a lot of people were critical with the fact that there was so much packed under the hood. Now we’re especially pleased to be introducing things like Move and 3-D gaming because we’re able to show tangibly why we released the PS3 with the power it has, and why it makes so much sense to future proof a console.” Sony also updated its PS3 Terms of Service to warn against too much 3-D viewing.
